Popular among commercial buyers, SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) designs are becoming increasingly sought-after by private clients due to their internal space and sea keeping abilities. The most prominent example of this is the Abeking & Rasmussen designed Silver Cloud, a 40.54 metre SWATH that was launched in 2008. The torpedo-shaped submerged hulls contain the engines and as a result the vibration levels on board are significantly reduced.
The Coolest Multihull Superyachts
This 27.43 metre catamaran was first launched in 2004 as a fishing vessel, before being refitted in 2015 by Ocean Voyager and relaunched under the name Rogue. Sold in June 2018 she was renamed Basilisk. Ideal for long cruises, she boasts a maximum range of 7,000 nautical miles at 12 knots, while the eight-tonne deck crane means that all manner of superyacht water toys can be stored aboard.
